Interesting Presentation.—A goodly number gathered at Dinam Hall on WeduMay evening last week for a very worthy purpose. The Co- operative Society at Nantymoel is an import- ant and prosperous concern, which has been in existence for over 21 years. At first it coin- menced in a small way, with only 70 members, now it has a membership of 2,200. The society was fortunate in its choice of a manager in the j person of Mr. Daniel Enoch, who has filled the position in an efficient and comm«mdable man- ner. The employees and other friends thought it beooming to present him with a testimonial at the end of 21 years' service. The idea was taken up enthusiastically, and everything worked smoothly. One hundred guineas were collected, and a < £ 50 War Bond and a handsome stick were given to Mr. Enoch; a silver tea and coffee service, with silver. plate, to Mrs. Enoch; and a valuable dressing-case to Miss Gwennie Jones, their adopted daughter. The meeting was presided over by Mr. Worthy Boobyer, and the following spoke:—Messrs. Gregory, Gwilym Thomas, Kendrick Jones, Lloyd, Dyas, and Rev. J. E. Rees. They all bore high testimony to the sterling qualities of Mr. and Mrs. Enoch, and told how they had won general confidence and respect. They also paid tribute to the wisdom and insight of the manager. Songs were sung by Mrs. Kinsey- Roberts, Mr. Orlando Howells, Mr. John Hughes, and Mr. Mansel Griffiths. Mr. Enoch, in responding, said he sincerely valued the ex- pression of confidence and satisfaction. The lhual vote of thanks closed a pleasant meeting,
